The Mango Orchard in Marathi Aamrai means a group of mango trees on our farm. Word Aam means mango, and Rai means the group of mango trees. It is also called Ambyachi wadi locally.
An Aamrai is a sight or farmland, with rows upon rows of lush green trees bearing the plump, golden fruit. The orchards are usually located in well-draining soils with red laterite stones in the base and ample sunlight. The trees are typically grown using traditional farming methods using organic fertilizers and pesticides.
We use cow dung and mulching waste from our farmlands. Most of these farms are sea-facing, which gets winds from the Arabian sea.
